Benrinnes 11yo 2010 Bottling Note

Well, would you look at what we have here? It's a single malt from Benrinnes, and it joins the independent range of bottlings from us – Master of Malt! After checking over our stash of splendid spirits, this one was looking good and ready for bottling, having spent a total of 11 years maturing, including a finishing period in ex-oloroso hogsheads. The casks were cracked open in 2022, unleashing a total of 195 bottles at a hearty 57.2% ABV. A drop of water can certainly help to open up the flavours here.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Floral suggestions of heather, blossom, and honeysuckle lead to creamier stone fruit and Peach Melba. A whiff of vanilla shortbread, toasted marshmallow, and some more savoury salinity.

Palate: Robust, mapley malt packs a punch, alongside dense oak and dark muscovado sugar. Dates, raisins, and prunes begin to make an appearance alongside white pepper prickle at the edges.

Finish: Custard and toasty crème brûlée keep things creamy, while warming nutmeg and clove edge in towards the end.

Reviews for Benrinnes 11 Year Old 2010 (Master of Malt)
A super sherry cask dram.
Benrinnes is quite a light spirit, so even though it’s been in a refill Oloroso sherry cask this bottle has loads of those sherry cask flavours and spices. In addition there’s no sulphur notes on the nose or palate, it’s a super dram imho.

very enjoyable
Tried this for the first time last evening and very enjoyable it was, too. At nearly 58% it packs a punch and the sherry influence is obvious. The tasting notes above are pretty spot on but I would add that with my second (or was it my third?) tasting, after the bottle had been open for a while and the whisky had been in the glass, there was a perfume on the palate (pleasant!!) and a hint of liquorice. Certainly a dram I'm going to enjoy and at £50 for cask non-chillfiltered cask strength, a good buy. I've already bought the MoM Dailuaine to try on the strength of this..
